This should be fun...
For me, it is 545 yards. Hit a real good drive, had 270 ish in. Hit a great 3 wood that scraped across the corner of the bunker and rolled to about 40 feet. Considering my average drive is about 265, that was 2 great pokes for me.
Yours?

Somewhere in the upper 600s, like 660 or so. College tournament about 10 years ago. Totally luck after my drive hit a sprinkler head and then the cart path that crossed the fairway. Drive went over 400.

Worst part was the 3 putt that followed lol

Actually, I have absolutely no clue but I'd consider 540 with no downhill/wind/etc. as factors being the definite upper limit and requiring a couple of perfect and longer than usual shots if I'm armchair guesstimating.

566 yards, but it was down hill and down wind. I haven't come close to repeating that. I guess it was a blue moon that day. lol

Years ago I reached a 570-yard and a 550-yard par 5 in two, but I need to explain... Both were down in central Oklahoma at the Cedar Valley GC, a course built on hard red clay. Both came during a summer dry spells.

The 570 was a dogleg left with a slalom rim on the outside of the landing area.  I hit a hot draw, and it bounced high into the slalom and bounded downhill, probably 340 in all. Then, I hit a 4W out of light rough, and it hit and ran 20 yards onto the green.

The 550 also had a fairly sharp dogleg left. In original hole design, the hill was covered with trees: inside the dogleg bordering the landing area, a heavy scattering of cedars protected it. But, a brushfire torched the greenery, leaving a hard dark half acre. So, I hit a high draw with a driver, the ball hit the hard hill, and started rollllling off the hillside. Somehow I ended up just 150 yards from the green, and hit a 7i into the center of a large green.

In plusher Midwest turf, I have a chance to get home in two if the hole is under 500 yards. But, I normally bury the shot in a greenside bunker, or airmail the green (happened with a tailwind).

855....according to the misprint to the scorecard lol. I think that's a place called sand ridge in Vero Beach.

In actuality longest has to be at Kinderlou Forest in Valdosta GA. I don't think any of those four are under 580 by the card. 2 is straight downhill the whole way, 4 if you go up the right and turn it over it'll chase but still a long approach up hill over a giant hole. 11 is a brute straight out and is 14 a double dogleg with Pines guarding the right side. Beautiful layout though and well conditioned!

526 apparently?  Just looked at the scorecard, and I hit 5 wood, 3-iron.  The only thing I recall about the 3-iron is that it was from about 220, bounced once onto the green.  I'm guessing the tees were WAY up that day - there is no way that hole plays 526.

Other than that, 500.  5 wood, 5 wood onto the green.

Ironically, this was in the same round (first hole is the 500 yarder).  I was playing with my father and a random guy.  So he sees me have eagle putts on two of the first three holes of less than 15 feet; he thought I was a phenom.  I'm guessing I ended up shooting somewhere in the 90's and put an end to his thoughts pretty quickly.

I think something like 550. Driver and a how-the-heck-did-it-go-that-far hybrid from 250. Downhill drive, uphill approach. Probably lucky the green was clear because I was not going for it.

How downhill is the course?
Not any knock on you, but I see that the TOC event there has a few par 4s at 525+ with one at 551. It can't play that long can it?

530 is the distance on the card, it's 470-480 ish if you decide to cut the corner and make it through the sage brush area. Driver, 3 hybrid. Funny part was I used my hybrid to layup short of the green by my usual chipping spot and ended up yoking one and carrying to the middle of the green. Haven't been on one since.

Circa 30 years ago, Tex Consoliver golf course (Pawnee Prairie) 13th hole Wichita KS.   about 600 yards, ground hard as a rock, straight down wind in Wichita KS, (if you've been there you know what I'm talk'in about) persimmon driver and persimmon 3 wood back fringe of the green.  That 3 wood still might be the purest shot I have ever hit.  

Now days.....I can't remember the last time I have reached a par 5 in 2.  :(

For me, anything in the 500's is reachable, the question is holding the green with a long iron or wood. The most IMPRESSIVE Par-5 I ever saw was playing with Michael Nicklaus in a practice round for the Florida Open at Grenelefe years ago, with the old ball. 580 yard Par-5, he hit Driver/4-iron pin high 8', (no bounce, it was stiffed), made 3......I was considered pretty long back then, that was a tough hole to reach in 2, on the fly. The ball just didn't carry as much in the Early 90's......
